In this highly competitive global environment, any professional and progressive organization that aims to survive and grow significantly in the marketplace must unshackle itself from ad hoc ways of prediction. Instead, it should use analytic models for accurate prediction so that the models can borrow strength from part data. It is in this context, the role of predictive modeling is important in business context. Predictive Modeling embraces a variety of techniques that can be used by organizations to predict continuous (Sales or Demand) as well as categorical (Buyer or Non-Buyer) dependent variables based on a host of input variables (Independent Variables).
